The San Francisco Chronicle on Del Brown

The San Francisco Chronicle’s obituary. It mentions Del’s 127-pound tarpon on 8-pound test, which tends to be overshadowed by his permit exploits. “Mr. Brown practically invented the sport of fly-fishing for permit fish. He caught more permit — by a factor of five — than any other angler in history, caught the biggest fish using the lightest test line and designed the most popular fly to lure the elusive critters.”
